Belmont Stakes Draw: Justify Is Favorite in Bid for Triple Crown

The last Belmont Stakes victor to break from post No. 1 was Touch Gold in 1997, although Tapwrit won the third leg of the Triple Crown a year ago from post No. 2.

"I just feel like most importantly the horse is doing well".

Justify won the Preakness Stakes on May 19 after winning the Kentucky Derby on May 5. Preakness runner-up Bravazo and Vino Rosso are next at 8-1, followed by Gronkowski and Tenfold at 12-1, Blended Citizen at 15-1 and 30-1 shots Noble Indy, Free Drop Billy and Restoring Hope. Bravazo was sixth in the Derby and came running late to finish a half-length behind Justify in the Preakness.

"I think, like all of us, we need Justify to wake up on the wrong side of the bed to have a chance", said Todd Pletcher, the trainer of Vino Rosso and Noble Indy with three previous Belmont wins to his name.

Is Trump prepared to life sanctions as a show of good faith to make that happen? "They want to develop as a country", Trump said. It was an effort that ultimately failed as Clinton's time in office ran out, and relations turned sour again after George W.

"Heading into Belmont, our team is thrilled to partner with Wheels Up, America's fastest-growing private aviation company", said Elliott Walden, President and Chief Executive of WinStar Farm, who co-owns Justify with the China Horse Club, Head of Plains Partners, and Starlight Racing.

The 10-horse field was revealed at the draw for post positions. Additionally, Justify will attempt to become the only undefeated horse besides Seattle Slew to achieve what has always been considered among the most hard feats in all of sport: winning three prestigious races at varying lengths in three different states over a five-week span.

Back in 2003, Juddmonte's Empire Maker took home the race, spoiling the Triple Crown aspirations of Funny Cide, who finished in third.

The 150th Belmont Stakes will take place on Saturday, June 9 in Elmont, N.Y. The race is held at Belmont Park with a post time of 6:37 p.m. ET.
